MUSCATINE, Iowa–As the thought of crisp autumn days has families looking for outdoor activities, Big Brothers Big Sisters and Special Olympics of Muscatine County invite you to their first annual car show, held in conjunction with Hy-Vee. The event promises socially distanced fun and a new way to support these two important Muscatine organizations.

As part of a commitment to hold community events, Hy-Vee of Muscatine approached Big Brothers Big Sisters and Special Olympics about holding a car show fundraiser. They welcomed the suggestion. “Fundraising has proven extremely difficult this year and our organizations appreciate all efforts to fuel our missions,” shared Big Brothers Big Sisters Director Lindsey Phillips.

On Sept. 19, anyone wanting to enter their car or motorcycle into the show can do so by stopping by the registration tent in the Hy-Vee Muscatine parking lot (2400 Second Avenue) at 10:30 am and paying a registration fee of $20. Cars and motorcycles will park more than six feet apart from each other to allow people to social distance as they view them.

Starting at 11 a. m., anyone may attend the show for free. People may vote for their favorite entry by placing money in the donation envelope on the windshield of each vehicle. At the end of the day, volunteers will total the amount of money raised and give a people’s choice trophy to the entry that raises the most. Cars and motorcycles will also compete for best in show, most unique, and littles’ choice trophies. All of the money raised both through registration fees and people’s choice donations will go directly to Big Brothers Big Sisters and Special Olympics.

Along with the car show, Hy-Vee will have lunch available. They will grill throughout the event, providing tasty meals to those who would like them. To top it off, one of Muscatine’s hometown bands, Lefty and the Spinners, will perform at the event.

As you look for ways to have fun this fall, Big Brothers Big Sisters and Special Olympics Muscatine hope you will consider enjoying a day at the car show and supporting them in the process. As Special Olympics Program Director Jason Miller stated, “I’m just looking forward to seeing people, being outside, checking out some sweet rides, and enjoying some good food and entertainment.”

For those unable to attend the car show, the Muscatine Community Y continues their Changing Lives campaign, which will in part benefit Big Brothers Big Sisters and Special Olympics. They accept coin donations in their main lobby and online donations of any size at http://www.muscatiney.org/donate.
